highway 49 laundries found tons of gold dust
18 wheeler ton hauls of old recycled worn rust
back before the sun shined in a homeless land
even before the demand outweighed the plans

from purple people land to the deep angry blue
all the way across the tip top of a drop off view
why time could never feel an empty void glow
came real close that time at a starlight show

now washin' clothes it just ain't the same without ya
stuck on heavy load wash and rinse cycle Nostalgia

stuck on heavy load wash and rinse cycle Nostalgia
pockets with fishing weights and onions from Vidalia
picking water cress along the river bank while ogling
found a free fish net and wicker lawn chair googling

a party at the near earth object observatory reckoned
to take off a half day was far out at ten mile per second
so they all loaded into a woody an headed for the coast
picnicked by the lava flows with marshmallows to toast

picnicked by the lava flows with marshmallows to toast
tupelo honey pancakes dine with stingless bees for a roast
after the feast, the chance of survival decreases down to zero
those who gave more only to lose their lives are the real heroes

took a right turn down memory lane
as sun shined down without any rain
memories from yesterday taste good
salmon & veggies smoke cedarwood

salmon & veggies smoke cedarwood
cigarettes down to the nub
hot coal burns the throat
harsh words sound worse spoke
than the meaning could confer, if the plank
the paddle of the canoe had not been lost

the paddle of the canoe had not been lost
abort the mission and go tally up the loss
don't keep ur head down too long though
the stronger the wave the harder we row

from an unbearable undertow to Great Success
guess that really depends on how much we rest
down for the count now it may look like a failure
never give up keep pressing on toward the mark

never give up keep pressing on toward the mark
got no choice really not ready for the art
of the slow fade, the sharp blade, the koolaid sayonara
sorrows follow where we may wander on this earth
a sense of wonder sound of thunder sustains us till rebirth

a sense of wonder sound of thunder sustains us till rebirth
digging deep inside soul searching for relentless inner worth
from the crack of dawn to the last sunset streak'n shoot'n star
at night time day dreaming far from lonely island drifting way-way too far

putting mink oil on an Old Scar for sheer beauty
double-dip chocolate vanilla ice cream tutti frutti
out back easy street hammock on mild summer
nostalgic speakers make sense of light thunder

nostalgic speakers
make sense of light thunder
in our heyday
we pondered in wonder
if we could predict
when the storm would chunder
and counted the seconds
between lightning and thunder

counted the seconds between lightning and thunder
in between the second hand & the minute of wonder
discovered the patience how it breaks down in time
missing out on The Moment to relive it in my mind

way before the Lightning & thunder
was a familiar place way out yonder
can't put my finger on it so it seems
emotionless journey changin scenes

Emotionless journey changing scenes
Behind the velvet curtain
Actors faces wooden say their lines
Though their feet be hurting
Stuck in the prop too small shoes
They mince and prance in kirtles
Point their painful tiny toes
Maidens wait On courting
Handsome swains arrive and claim
Kudos for their persons

Behind the velvet curtain
hides the most uncertain
reality play for the ages
actors of life on stages

blowing out their candles like fools
sitting here alone on wooden stools
replaying their minds Fun & Sorrow
lost youth for yesterdays tomorrow

lost youth
for yesterdays tomorrows
dusty yearbooks faded photos
laughed at by your sons and daughters

who never knew you yearned and lusted
trusted your own supple body
gave your smooth cheek to their father
now they wonder why you bothered

dusty yearbooks faded photos
neighborhood memories atow
a tight line walking bare feet
over an entire Ocean DEEP

don't look down it's too far to fall
a blessed man already has it all
throwing the peace sign 2 forget
those blank experiences to regret

A blessed man already has it all
top of a meek earth standing tall
before the rising walk and crawl
super speed blast hold on tight

Spontaneous Combination Cold
Down this long and endless road
Leaving behind a long heavy load
A different truth from a fiction sold

A different truth from a fiction sold
Cheap at the corner newsstand
Headlines bold proclaim The End
Of the world is near. You're just
The sum of your own fears
Know thyself, no one else will
Watch your back, they mean to kill.

watch your back they mean to kill
trade tomorrow for a cheap thrill
bulletproof pride to ice the fear
quick while the coast is clear

run for cover like it's your very last
why big dreams fly by way too fast
gone in the blink of a one eyed eye
vibrant art colors paintin blue doubt

painting blue doubt
and dots before my eyes
not a big surprise
you always were
one for being predictable

energy source receptacle
plug in now two recharge
broken chains melt bars

free as a caged bird lost inside
with clipped wings roaring bye
fuel by space Time continuum
motion picture stuck on rerun

motion picture stuck on rerun
pray tell how many times
can a star be reborn
into another incarnation
into incandescent fermentation
rising to its zenith high
plunging down from the black sky
into dark oblivion

into dark Oblivion
rise before the fall
the up come down
PRIDE spells it all

pause for a moment to reconsider
transforming energy from a blast
friendships collide in a neon sky
far beyond past a sad goodbye

far beyond
past a sad goodbye
so long ago
you left me bereft
alone in the dark cold
wilderness
with only the birds
and the beasts for friends
and cattail shoots for salad

and cattail shoots for salad
come back to the light, Alice
step away from the rabbit hole
enter a night escape for a stroll

way out in the distance too far away
where Optical Illusions Distort Reality
why Babbling Words never make cents
when 'hypocrisy' straddle both sides of the fence

When hypocrisy straddles
Both sides of the fence
When truthness spills out
Both sides of the mouth
Critical thinkers
Just have to roll eyes
Those who feel everything
Fall back in surprise
As Mother Nature takes back
What we thought she gived
And neighbors breathe sighs
We're so happy we lived

WE'RE SO HAPPY WE LIVED
WHO IS
ALL I DO IS SLEEP
MIGHT AS WELL BE DEAD

HAD A FEW GOOD DAYS
NEVER WORKED OUT
ALL MEN ARE CREEPS
WHY ARE WE HERE

Why are we here?
And just where are we?
I can't say---they said the name
But I don't speak PsuedoCyrillique
So I really can't say
And I really can't stay
